Swordtember 10-12: Gladius, Seax, Rapier
A Gladius only makes sense when paired with the Scutum.
And rapiers mean depicting the greatest sword fight ever written.
Swordtember 07-09: Kopis, Falcata, Shotel.
Can’t really tell the difference between a Kopis and a Falcata, besides the horse shape on the hilt for the Falcata. A close up it is then.
Swordtember 05-06: Longsword, Claymore
The thing about researching swords is finding out how some names are not as well defined as the other. Skipped Scimitar as it’s a very loose definition of a type of curved swords, which made it hard to pinpoint what to draw. And apparently there are two interpretations of what a Claymore is: it’s either a very long two-handed sword or a basket-hilt broadsword.
Swordtember 01-03 : Katana, Dao, Saber.
Some enterprising individuals decided to start a Swordtember series of sketches, with one prompt list based on actual swords. Decided on the actual sword path as it requires me to research.
So the first three swords: Katana, Dao and Saber.
